Looking for a hot career? Check out EGSC’s new AA in Fire and Emergency Services Administration

   Thinking about getting your degree in Fire Science? Instead, look into East Georgia State College’s Fire and Emergency Services Administration program, which will offer an online Associates Degree in FESA this Fall! Prior to this degree, students who wanted to further their education by earning their FESA Bachelor of Science degree had to first complete a degree in Fire Science at a technical college. Now, the path to a great career is even easier!
   As a result of the rapid changes in firefighting and the administrative duties currently being experienced in the field, academic degrees are becoming more and more sought-after for those who have chosen firefighting as their career. EGSC’s Associate of Arts in Fire and Emergency Services Administration strives to enhance and expand a student’s knowledge base, as well as prepare them for organizational leadership positions, setting them on the pathway to a bright future. Specific areas of focus include prevention management, administration, safety and building fire and emergency protection systems. The program is specifically designed to prepare students for success when transitioning into the Bachelor’s program at EGSC in Fire and Emergency Services Administration. The program follows the Fire and Emergency Services Higher Education (FESHE) national model of recommended core curriculum for an Associate’s degree in the field of fire and emergency services administration.
   “This is a great opportunity for East Georgia State College to provide students with the knowledge to move into emergency services careers and to enable them to move upward in these organizations,” said Professor Beverley Walker, Director of the FESA Program. “The program is also being offered online to meet the demands of our ever-changing student demographic.”
   Starting in Fall of 2017, students can now attend EGSC for four years and earn their degree rather than having to stop and start their education to move forward in their career. The AA in FESA program is currently waiting on additional recognitions and approvals from FESHE to compliment their recognition of the BS in FESA degree.
